Thanks for the add.

Did some volunteer stuff with Operation Military Kids, and ran into some of the Team 18 guys there. Piqued my interest, and I started talking to a recruiter. Swore in Dec 2018. I joined with an EOD challenge contract, went to TSC Naval Station Great Lakes, got rolled a couple times and then got non-selected at the board. Talked with a couple of the instructors there offline and decided I needed to take some time to get better, so I dropped after the non-select, got a recommendation to return and fully intend to go back. Anyway then I went to fort-lost-in-the-woods for EA school, and now I'm off to Okinawa.

Welcome. That is a good rate for when, or if you decide to get out. Make the most of it.

Hi all. Thanks for letting me join. My name is Trevor and I spent in the Corps from 2006-2012 spent 5 years of that overseas. 1 tour in Iraq and multiple other deployment including Israel and Kuwait. I got out and went into business for a few years and realized that's not my cup of tea. I'm leaving for a contracting position overseas next month. Thanks for everything you do.
